Jordan S Read


Jordan S Read received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012 in environmental fluid mechanics. His dissertation “Physical processes in small temperate lakes” included the study of temperature dynamics and gas fluxes in 40 lakes distributed around the world, as well as the engineering of experimental lake manipulations. Jordan’s specialty is combining high-frequency observational data from automated sensors with hydrodynamic modeling. Recently, this work has extended to include remotely sensed data as part of automated model parameterizations for thousands of U.S. lakes. Jordan’s research products include several open source analytical and modeling packages (see, in addition to traditional peer-reviewed publications (see google scholar). Jordan is currently a principal investigator for the Long Term Ecological Research – North Temperate Lakes, is a Lead-PI on a project to modeling climate change impacts on lake temperatures, a Co-PI on the continental-scale synthesis of stream metabolism, and has served as a steering committee member of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network. Jordan is an associate editor of the journal "Limnology and Oceanography Letters". Jordan is chief of the Data Science Branch within the Water Mission's Integrated Information Dissemination Division (IIDD). IIDD's efforts (of which Jordan is a part) include integrating and centralizing disparate data, improving access to data and research, developing analytical and visualization tools, and multidisciplinary collaboration towards efficient and open scientific research.
